Hotels stories on Enjoy Food & Travel 2009


























To make it easier for you, I have compiled all the hotels on Enjoy Food & Travel for the year 2009 on this page. Enjoy!

Highly Recommendable BBBBB: (5,00 - 4,51 points)
  1. SAS Radisson Hotel Scandinavia, Göteborg (SE): BBBBB- (4,69 points)
    Highly recommended by Enjoy Food & Travel. A professional run business class hotel to a economy class price. A bargain in Göteborg.

    Good BBBB: (4,50 - 3,51 points)

  2. Santa Maria Hotel, Sitges (ES): BBBB+ (4,38 points)
    Santa Maria is still a great bargain in Sitges. The lower score compared to the last one, is due to stricter and improved evaluation in the Bargain rating system. This to emphasize that our stay this year was as good as last year. The Enjoy Food & Travel team will certainly return here again.

  3. Stora Brännbo, Sigtuna (SE) (4,36 points)
    Stora Brännbo is a professionally run hotel in a scenic setting. Both the tranquility of small town Sweden, as well as the Stockholm metropolitan area is within reach. Good overall standard, excellent service, and a buffet breakfast to die for.

  4. Hotel Acta Millenni Hotel, Barcelona (ES): BBBB+ (4,35 points)
    The best stay I've had in Barcelona until now. Would particularly thank the very nice reception staff. Would have been a great plus to have breakfast included in the price, and an air conditioning in working order.

  5. Hotel Cathédrale, Strasbourg (FR): BBBB+ (4,34 points)
    Hôtel Cathédrale is good choice when staying in Strasbourg. It has character, charm, and an unbeatable location. A little low on indoor facilities, some needs of maintenance and certainly not suited for elderly or disabled.

  6. Economy Class, M/F Crown of Scandinavia: (DK) BBBB (4,29 points)
    Traveling budget in Japanese style. Tiny, but well organized room, at a low price. Good bargain for money.

  7. Radisson SAS Hotel Oslo Airport, Oslo (NO): BBBB+ - 4,28 points
    An excellent choice for those that want to catch an early plane. Very professionally run hotel comfortably located by the Oslo Airport terminal.

  8. Park Inn Arendal (NO): BBBB (4,19 points) Another good Park Inn hotel, providing good value for money on the south eastern coast of Norway. Recommended by Enjoy Food & Travel.

  9. Conrad Brussels Hotel, Brussels (BE): BBBB (3,83 points)
    A grand hotel experience in Brussels. Large, and very impressive lobby area. Location in major shopping area, but located 20 minutes away from the historic heart of Europe. Very expensive rooms, and you will have to pay extra for breakfast, internet access and to get admission to exercise centre. At this price, you could so much more in other, and more personal hotels in the European capital.

  10. Commodore Class, M/F Pearl of Scandinavia (DK): BBBB (3,79 points)
    Traveling in a Commodore class cabin is a very expensive experience, and by no means a bargain. This sum could have been better spent on two flight tickets to a European destination.

  11. Thon Hotel Bergen Brygge, Bergen (NO): BBBB- (3,57 points)
    A budget hotel at the lower end of the scale, budget as in feeling a little cheap, as well as inexpensive. Great location. Good breakfast you have to pay extra for. Low in inhouse facilities.

    Room for improvements BBB: (3,50 - 2,51 points)

  12. Apartementos Las Gacelas, Playa Del Ingles (ES): BBB+ (3,4 points)
    The Las Gacelas Apartments is a cheap accommodation at Playa Del Ingles in more than one sense of the word. I would hesitate to recommend it any other than to those who are looking for a inexpensive place to stay and do not care about comfort.
